Patient to the chiropractor: “Treat me so I don’t hurt.”
Chiropractor: “Be sure to do your exercises, so you won’t
Chiropractors like your Paramus chiropractor at Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center
wonder how to get back pain patients to do suggested
exercises. In any case, these exercises help back pain sufferers get stronger in addition to decrease and prevent back pain! The back muscles and gluteus muscles and hamstrings get stronger. Patients
wonder why the chiropractor recommends
exercises when all they wanted was for the chiropractor
to correct the back pain problem. What a dilemma!
Both the Paramus chiropractor and Paramus chiropractic patient
have the same goal - pain relief – but their beliefs, experiences and
expectations vary. (1) That’s how it is. Research
shows this. Clinical experience shows this. When patients
recognize this and their chiropractors recognize this, everyone then works
together to relieve Paramus back pain, prevent future pain, and
strengthen muscle. Let’s do that!
EXERCISE GUIDELINES TO REDUCE AND PREVENT BACK
PAIN AND NECK PAIN
Guidelines for what to do with back pain and neck pain are established. Exercise is
in the mix of the recommendations for the non-invasive
pharmacological and non-pharmacological therapies to treat acute and chronic low back pain and neck pain both without serious pathology and with radiculopathy. Spinal manipulation and manual
therapy are also listed in these guidelines by the Global Spine Care
Initiative. (2) Paramus Medical & Sports Rehabilitation Center carefully considers
these in caring for Paramus back pain.
BACK PAIN BENEFITS FROM STRONG GLUTEAL MUSCLES
Patients with low back pain tend to be less active. Pain shapes that
decision. Low back pain patients fear that activity may set
off pain, resulting in weakened muscles like the gluteus maximus. Prolonged
immobilization or sedentariness prevents use of these muscles.
In low back pain patients, a weak gluteus maximus is common.
Researchers write that the gluteus maximus cross-sectional
area is decreased in low back pain sufferers, especially
in women. (3) For Paramus chiropractic back pain patients facing persistent lumbopelvic pain and test
positive for sacroiliac joint dysfunction, doing gluteus
maximus strengthening exercises is beneficial. Patients who
did exercise found a decrease in pain and an improvement
in gluteus maximum strength and function. (4) Doing both - exercise
to strengthening the gluteus maximus muscles and lumbar segmental stabilization
exercise – reduced low back pain disability significantly more
and improved lumbar spine muscle strength and balance better
than just lumbar segmental stabilization exercise by itself. (5) To
activate the gluteus maximus muscles, erector spinae and hamstrings
more deliverately during exercise, researchers created a unique laser pointer system that permitted
the exercise participants to see their muscle usage. This enhanced
their form. (6) Let your Paramus chiropractor be your laser
pointer! Consider using the proposed
tips for how to exercise the right way.
